Michael is a former international swimmer best known for the 200m Butterfly. He holds dual nationality and has set national records for both Team GB and Team Jamaica during his competitive swimming career. In 2018, Michael was awarded Sportsman of the Year in Jamaica for his contribution to sport.
As one of the few mixed-race swimmers in a traditionally white sport, he campaigns for inclusion and equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community all around the world. Michael also holds a First-Class Honours Degree in Early Childhood Studies and aims to combine the use of his fundamental insights that an elitist career prevails, and thus use this as a catalyst to inspire, educate and nurture young athletes towards positive social empowerment.
We are so proud to have Michael as our Diversity Champion, after being part of the team for a number of years, and he brings a wealth of experience in everything he does. With this new role, he will continue to be an invaluable member of the team in many different respects.
